I'd rather go for \crossHeadsOn, since it's less ambiguous.  I
mean, yes, a cross is an X shape, but it still doesn't feel as
clear as \cross.

One caution I'll throw in: the name may well change during GLISS
(Grand Lilypond Input Syntax Standardization).  In particular, one
discussion we'll have is whether we should standardize on

That said, we're not going to have this discussion right now, so
there's basically a 50% chance that whatever you pick, it'll be
changed next year anyway.  Hate to be so pessimistic, but I think
it's better for people to be aware of upcoming potential problems.
